    for the recent superbird single tournament abc did charge entrance fee even though I asked if it could be lowered or waived. Since I was going to just participate in the tournament and leave right after not playing anymore so technically I just need a couple hours pass not day pass).

    Entry FEE: $5.00 per person
    You don't need a partner: Guys or females pick random out of box for partner.

    Let me try to discuss this with William to see if we can Give you a discount for playing our Tournament on your Entrance FEE. We try our Best to balance things out w/ the tournament cost & do as much as we can to lessen the cost of each participants. And make it Enjoyable for everyone. thx. Hope to see you on the next SuperBird Event.

    Please pass some words out for the FEMALES: I know we don't want to start using long hair wigs for Early Halloween. Let make this friendly and Fun.

    A. Member's club entrance will be free. In order for any non-member
    to play in ABC, they have to pay the entrance fee.

    B. It's impossible to keep track of anyone come to play just for
    SuperBird or play on any court before or after.

    C. The $5 Tournament Fee will go back to the winners not goes to ABC.


    Thanks
    William

    We will try to separate 2 groups: Stronger player(A)(females or males)---will pick a random partner from a box of name of ( a weaker players). So far this system has been working great in trying make a balance in the game & making it more excitement to play with a new partner:females or males.

    It going to be a fun match, so you can pick your own lady or we can set you up doing the time of the match.
    But you said we can pick our own

    I don't know if my partner will play if we'll need to play with someone else....we're both D players so........

    ya i think the drawing for random partners should only apply if people don't have their own partners.

    Come early, so Sammy & I can see how strong your lady partner is. We try to put the strongest player to pick a random D level or weaker partner. Not sure it will be fair for you to have D & D level partner: We will try to work things out at the tournament. We need to see how many ladies players we have. If everyone is OK with that, you can stick with your partner. We try to encourage friendship and most of all, Have a good time.And win some PRIZES AS WELL.

    ..hmm, i kinda like this idea..but then, what if there is 1 super pair playing? most likely that pair is going to romp all the way and win the whole bling-bling-bling..hmm..
    Mix and match 'em??..
    But i do like a longer scoring format, perhaps til 30 pts (1 game)..
    Eddie, are you planning to reserve enough courts, just in case a lot of players/pairs turn up?

    So far, We got at least 10 pairs.

    If we go beyond 15 pairs...we are getting another Court. But, since we are playing doubles, we might use open courts for Consolation.

    Every pairs will play 2 rounds:

    1 rounds will be 21pts and the Winners of every round will be 21pts If you don't lose a game.

    Consolation rounds will be 15pts. ONLY 21pts if we don't have less # of pairs to make game longer.This will be decided among players.

    16pairs show up: The winners of all rounds will be playing total of 7 (21pts matches): I think that is a lot of matches. We don't want this tournament to go beyond 4hrs: We need to go to dinner & have time with the family too on Sunday.

    The Final rounds will be played best of 3 games to 21pts: Players will have the option of pts. system and rounds.

    Default ^^So..^^

    ..if i understand the scoring format:
    - Each pair will play in the main draw using 1 game of 21 pts (straight).
    - Once a pair loses, then the pair will play in the Consolation Rd. Winning pair moves on.
    - Consolation Rd. is also 1 game of 15 pts (straight).
    - Not quite sure by this "16pairs show up: The winners of all rounds will be playing total of 7 (21pts matches)"??..7 of what??..
    Sorry if i misunderstand..

    Default that is right

    - Not quite sure by this "16pairs show up: The winners of all rounds will be playing total of 7 (21pts matches)"??..7 of what??..
    Sorry if i misunderstand..[/quote]

    ----->this statement is just telling you that the winning pairs will be playing many rounds as they more up the LADDER. Sorry for the confusion.

    Everything you confirm is corrected. So far that is the idea ways of the pt. system at the moment. We might need to make a little tune-up before the game to make it clear & happy for the majority of the players.

    Feel free to come & talk to Sammy & Me-Eddie if you misunderstand something or have a request you like. Then we will ask all players to do a quick vote on it.

    Default ^^Got it..^^

    ..that's what i thought as well & thanks for confirming.
    As for my request, i only have 1. In case there are less than 16 pairs, that is to have an option to extend the scoring format to 30 pts (either split into 3 games, 10 pts each; or 2 games, 15 pts each).

    How do you decide who wins with "2" games?

    ....or is it first to 30 pts regardless of 2 or 3 games??

    Can anyone play this event?

    Can I play again? I'll try to bring some girls with me.

    Is the $8.00 club entry fee waived for this event?

    Thanks.
